Love Yourself & Choose You

Love Yourself & Choose You

Give some thought to the relationships in your life. Is there one that stands out? Is there a partnership you can pinpoint as the most important? Who has made an imprint on your heart and soul? Is it a partner? A parent? A best friend? A spiritual guide?

It’s normal to forget about the relationship which you didn’t technically sign up for but the one that will last an entire lifetime. It is your relationship with yourself. It’s arguably the most important relationship to stay aware of, and put love into. You make a choice to stay committed to yourself, by getting out of bed each morning.

But sometimes we are neglectful of this relationship to ourself, and can simply sleep walk or auto-pilot through our waking hours. But, you have an ability to go above and beyond the most basic commitments to yourself. You have the ability to put love, attention, nurture, and care, into how you treat and show up for yourself. Emphasis on this relationship with yourself, and cultivating healthy self-love, has the ability to change your life for the better. 

So right now, you have the opportunity to wake up and put yourself on that pedestal of how you want to be treated. It’s about you. It’s for you. It is you and it’s for the betterment of your future but more importantly your present moment.

Treat yourself to those beautiful flowers. Give yourself some quiet time to reflect on how you could better enhance this relationship.

Do you consistently put the needs and wants of others before yours? Choose you. Choose your sanity. Choose your joy. Create a new pattern of putting yourself first even if it means letting go of others expectations or idealizations.

It’s your life and your masterpiece. Make it beautiful!

You didn’t just arrive here by chance, you were handed a divine invitation. Enjoy this powerful gift of life you've manifested.

You are a spiritual creation, existing in a physical world. Recognize the impermanence of this situation and get in tune with your inner vibration. Your relationship with yourself is your most crucial relationship and the key to loving your life.

Be brave. Stand up for yourself.

Be open. Maintain honesty with yourself.

Be clear. Set boundaries for yourself.

Be yourself unapologetically and it will be a blessing to all beings on your path.
